"Mandy's (Ann's) involvement as an expert patient at MultipleSclerosisCentral.com is one of the main reasons for the site's success. Her weekly columns never fail to resonate with other members of the community, and her insights into life with the disease are thoughtful and thought provoking. We are truly lucky to have her!" -July 17, 2008
"I will start by saying that working with Ann Pietrangelo is an absolute pleasure. Ann makes my job, as an editor, incredibly easy. Not only is she an exceptionally dependable writer, who has not missed a single deadline in my two years of working with her, but she doesn’t just positively respond to feedback, she seeks it out. And that is a true sign of a writer who takes great pride in her work. I’m 100% confident that when Ann receives an assignment, it will be a superbly written, skillfully formatted piece, that 9 times out of 10 will be submitted days before it’s due, which is an editor’s dream. But what it boils down to is this: Ann loves to write and she has the innate gift of being able to showcase that enthusiasm through her words. This is a gift not all writers have, but one all writers wish to have." -June 8, 2011

"I met Ann through volunteer work at Beyond Boobs! After meeting her in person I read both of her memoirs. Her honest, informative, and lively writing drew me into her world as she dealt first with MS and then with breast cancer. She did an amazing job of describing her life and making me, as a reader, feel like I was right there with her. As a fellow freelance writer, I have also found Ann to be kind and generous when it comes to sharing her experiences and her insights about the business." -April 10, 2015

I truly enjoy working with Ann. I strongly recommend her professionally.” -February 22, 2011
